Battery backup power for NW PA
New to this site and new to back up power requirements. I am in NW PA and we have occasional electrical outages. They last between 1 and 6 hours. I have a gas well which saves us quite a bit but when the power is interrupted I need an alternative source to power the ignition for the furnace and fan to force the warm air into the house. I also need to power the pump for the well and supply some lights as well as ignition for the range and hot water heaters . Not a whole lot of demand but essential in 20 degree weather. My question is what kind of battery power do I need and how does one install a sub panel to take over when the grid fails. I think a small generator would recharge my system. I would look to have two banks for supply to alternate for charging in case its a prolonged outage.
